Beachy Cottage Bathroom
Multiple trips to Turks and Caicos led these homeowners to create a bathroom with a palette inspired by the sea, sand, and sky of the British Isles. They turned an unused bedroom into a posh master suite with architecture to match their older home and a color palette to feed their vacation dreams.
Small glass tiles inlaid carpet-style in the floor, on the backsplash, and on shower walls give the room a seaside feel while adding shimmer.
One of the standout pieces in this new bath is the vanity, which gives the homeowners plenty of storage. The custom-made double medicine cabinet is designed to reflect the home’s early-20th-century style and creates a sense of relief in a room full of color.
Another custom feature in this bathroom is the vanity’s trough-style sink. Two wall-mount faucets add a modern touch to the bath’s cottage style, while pretty glassware adds charm.
Behind the vanity a large tiled shower fits into the sloped ceiling of this early 1900s house. With features such as body sprays, a bench, and a steam generator, it’s not your standard shower. The tan checked fabric covering the window adds cottage charm, while bringing a sandy color to the room’s scheme.
Accent with Tile
Inside the shower, the mosaic tile from the rest of the room is repeated on one wall to break up the large expanse of tan tile. An inset storage nook is outlined in solid teal tiles, another custom touch in this cool bathroom.
Above and Beyond
Another feature that brings vacation amenities home is the coffee bar just opposite the vanity. The homeowners thought of everything while creating their vacation-inspired retreat.
